Submission + - LHC/CMS Narrows Search for Higgs Particle (

astroengine writes: "On Wednesday, the CMS Collaboration announced its first science results. But no Higgs boson has been detected, yet. Physicists have instead narrowed the search down, and with a 95 percent certainty, the Higgs does not have a mass range of between 144 and 207 GeV/c2. In this quantum search for a proverbial needle in a haystack, it helps if the haystack shrinks a little."
